Scholarship Program

Guiding Philosophy

Baldwin’s community involvement in the educational process is an essential part of the "Baldwin Experience.” The shared participation of the administration, staff, parents and students in the educational process optimizes the benefits found in the school’s multi-cultural community.
 
The Baldwin School Scholarship Program offers a qualified middle school prospective student with limited financial resources the opportunity to enrich his or her life while sharing abilities, talents and aspirations with the Baldwin community. The scholarship student prospect must meet the academic requirements and have the motivation to learn and excel. Parents are expected to perform a supporting role in that matter. The guiding philosophy stresses the reciprocal nature of the Scholarship Program whereby the recipient will benefit from the opportunity he/she is given to broaden their horizons and at the same time contribute in making Baldwin a better and more diverse community.
 

Program History

Several years of careful consideration and planning went into establishing our Scholarship Program. Extensive research and studies were carried out in order to ensure that our Program would prosper and grow. In August 1998 the Program was established, and today, thanks to a group of wonderful parents, friends and contributors, a select group of students are thriving in their respective academic, social and athletic endeavors.

Each year, the Scholarship Committee composed of eleven volunteer members representing our Board of Directors, Administration, Parents and Faculty, meet and pre-screen candidates in order to begin the long process of interviews and applications. If all the requirements are met, two students are selected each year to join our student community, with the intention of seeing them graduate and become successful adults.

Direct Donation

The Golf Committee would like to thank all the Baldwin families and sponsors who have generously supported the Scholarship Program and its Scholarship students. Many of you have contributed year after year and for this we are very grateful.

We understand, however, that many of you do not play golf or do not view sponsorships as a beneficial marketing tool for your organization, but would still like to contribute to the Baldwin School Scholarship Program on an individual basis. For those of you who play golf, let us remind you that we include a parent / child category in our tournament.

We are extremely proud of the small but excellent group of scholarship students and their success. Your opportunity to help continue to strengthen the program is through a direct donation to the Scholarship Fund.
